Can giving multiple births through a woman's life cause her bladder to weaken and for her to lose control?
YES MOST definitely!: Yes , the probelm is the angle of yorururethra has dropped so the pressure in the bladder is greater than the urthral sphincter, so u lose urine when u cough or sneeze, etc. The good news is with a proper workup u can have a monor surgical procedure to fix the problem as it will only get worse over time so see your gyn for a workup , 1 advantage to csection - does not cause this problem. ...Read more
I took my birth control pill two hours late. I take it at the same time every day. Should I use a backup method?
Should be ok: Two hours late isn't significant. I.e. You didn't miss a day right? When you ask about 'backup' - it's important to realize that no contraception; not even birth control pills are 100% effective (pretty close though). Also oral contraception doesn't protect against sexually transmitted illnesses, so condoms may be something you want to consider for both pregnancy and STI prevention ...Read more
Had sex early the morning after my "most fertile day". I'm on birth control and i take it regularly. Pull out method used - should I worry?
I had sex using the 'pull out' method.Although he did it successfully but I'm still worried since I can't take any birth control pill.Please help.
Barrier protection: Pull out is not a reliable method of contraception. If you can not take the pill, use barrier contraception. Your male partner should use condom all the time every time. You may consider an IUD or at least a diaphragm and spermicidal jelly. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
I currently take Balziva 28 as my method of birth control. Anytime I miss even one day, I begin to spot. why is this?
Hello, I can't remember to take my birth control pills usually and I did not like the nexaplanon, are there any other birth control methods avalible?
Remembering BC Pills: I tell my patients to leave their BC pills right next to their toothbrush as a reminder each day. Now if you don't brush every day (yuck!) or travel a lot, that will not help. For patients who tolerate BC pills but cannot remember to take them every day, the Nuvaring is a good compromise. You only have to remember to insert the ring once a month, and fewer side effects than Nex. or Depo shot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What to do if i cannot take birth control because of medical reasons. What is the safest method / combination of methods that best protects against pregnancy?
IUD or Tubal: It depends on what your medical problems are. With some medical problems you can still take progesterone only birth control method such as Depo Provera. If you can't take any hormones at all, I would recommend getting a tubal ligation or a Paragard IUD. Other options would be barrier methods such as condoms, a diaphragm or Today Sponge.

Normal to change: Plan B contains a big dose of progesterone, so it would not be unusual that after taking Plan B that spotting would occur and may interfere with the next cycle or two. If you keep taking your regular BCP's regularly, things should stabilize in a month or two. If you are consistent with your BCP, you should not have to take Plan B in addition, unless you were on antibiotics, ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can i take the sugar pills two months in a row if i'm using the extended cycling method with my birth control? A bit paranoid i might be pregnant..
Placebo Pills: The sugar pills are placebo pills and placebo pills are just that...Placebo's. They're not going to do anything. If you're taking active pills all the time and skipping the period week then your risk of pregnancy is lower but with pills never 0%. Take a pregnancy test if you need, but unlikely that you're pregnant if you're consistent. Consider long acting methods that're more secure like iuds. ...Read more
I just got diagnosis w/Factor V deficiency. Was on cryselle Birth Control. What else can I take for birth control methods with this disorder?
Avoid estrogen.: You may take progestin-only or non-hormonal contraceptives, eg copper IUD. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is progestin only, but in studies, it has increased the risk of blood clot in FVL deficiency. Cryselle contains estrogen, which, when taken by a patient with Factor V Leiden deficiency, can increase the risk of blood clot. I would also come off the Seasonale; this has estrogen in it. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take birth control every day and never miss a pill. When my boyfriend and I have sex we use the "pull out" method. Is it possible to get pregnant?
It is but ...: The "pull out" method isn't particularly reliable, but oral contraception is quite effective. If you really are an "ideal" user - as in take it every day without fail - the failure rates are reported on the order of 0.3%(that's super effective). For "average" person - who does miss a dose here and there - the failure rates are reported in the range of 9%(still good but not great). ...Read more
